Hmmm....this carrier spotlight not updated since 2017.

                                                                              BISON AT 50

I posted a Freightliner from another carrier with a Bison 50th Anniversary trailer.
Here it is:

6 years ago already! July 2013.
Bison LCV was heading to Highway 401

Bison hits 50! Just in time before they get bought out by TFC.

Those LCV's are dope Rob, I'm gonna put that on the list for Toronto. Is Canada like the states where LCV's can only travel on certain roads?

Charlie you're a gentleman and a scholar. Thank you.

Also look what I found on that link you provided:

http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/trucks/pdfs/LCV-primary-network-ontario-inset-maps-january-2017.pdf

This is a fantastic resource. Thanks again Charlie.

The "Rush Hour" restrictions are in effect for oversize loads too.
I haven't seen many LCV's recently.
The main lane was between Toronto and Montreal; the west end of the 401 not as much.

The west end of the line is the 401 exit for Leamington where Bison fill an enclosed yard part of a Petro Canada truck stop
located on the southbound of the 401.

Exit 48 on Hwy. 401.
Challenger is also in that yard.

This is good to know because I'll be making the drive between Toronto and Montreal. Thanks Rob and Rene.

Are they running LCV's out of that yard at all Doug?
I haven't seen any by Mississauga Road for a long time.
Is Midland running them out of Brampton?
I've never seen a Midland set, only in pictures.
Have you pulled a set of LCV's Doug? I think you've pulled pretty everything else during your carreer.
